flight is an aerobatic flight. You will discover tricks like 360, spiral dives,
wing over…. An
adrenaline rush for sure. G Force like in a roller coaster but over lake
the flight: a dozen
If you find
roller coaster boring, because of two many people shouting around you, you are
a dare devil, so this one is made for you.
If you hate big turns, roller coasters, Gforce, being upside down, this flight is not for you, look at the discovery or thermal flight.
You will be told to come a couple minutes before we
leave to our chalet at col de la Forclaz ( about 30 minutes drive from Annecy)(town
of Montmin 74210) above Lake Annecy. We’ll
drive you to the take off thanks to our shuttle. After walking two minutes, you’ll
reach the green carpet that’s on
the take off. Check our photo and video gallery to see how it is.
It is important to notice that contrary to
parachute, we are not jumping of anything; a
paraglider works more like a plane that we’ll
take off with you on a gentle slope. You won’t have
that feeling of standing on a cliff and have to jump of a step down.
A briefing will be done by the pilot to tell you
what you’ll have to do. That can
change depending on the wind conditions. No worries, there is nothing
After having you connected to the paraglider, in a
very comfortable harness, in front on him, the instructor will ask you to walk
forward, you will feel a resistance in your back, it is the wing that starts to
inflate. A couple of seconds later, you feel yourself becoming lighter. He will
then ask you to run on a couple more meters sot ha we have a bit more speed and
you’ll be gently lifted off
the ground. You’ll never have the
feeling of jumping or falling down. The take off is a great feeling of
lightness. Then just have to enjoy the rest of the flight !
sensation flight, the pilot will fly straight over the lake to have as much
altitude as possible to start the video and go for it!!!
He will then propose you to take the control handles so that you can pilot the
paraglider on you own.
A few second touching the ground, he will ask you
to stand up again in the harness. Do a couple steps as we touch the ground. As
if you were walking down stairs, recovering your weight back on your legs. An
easy and funny feeling.
Count on about 1h30 until we have it all finished
and you leave from the chalet.
